Sociology Student Organizations at UNC Charlotte
The Sociology Department at UNC Charlotte has two student organizations in which our undergraduate and graduate students can participate.  Students are encouraged to actively participate in at least one of the student organizations to be more integrated into the functions of the department.  Integration in the department is beneficial to the student in many ways:
  • Students develop relationships with faculty which facilitate networking opportunities, as well as provides a basis from which letters of recommendation can be written.
  • Students can develop their leadership skills by taking on the responsibilities of club officers.
  • Students can learn more about the professional activities of sociologists.
  • Students can promote the field of sociology in the greater community.
The Sociology Department at UNC Charlotte established the Eta Chapter of North Carolina of Alpha Kappa Delta (AKD) in 1974.  The club's activity had waned in recent years and the club is attempting to grow and become more actively involved in scholarly and community events.
The Student Association of Sociology (SAS) was created in the Sociology Department for undergraduate students in 2007.
